Bad Ideas

The opposite of inspiration.

 

Starlight Ballroom

Last night, I showed at the annual Reflections fashion event at the Starlight Ballroom in Philadelphia. Watching masses of people look at my work is a nerve wrackingly voyeuristic experience. Especially when the music is too loud to eavesdrop.  To ease my mind, I painted.

Of In. Watercolor and ink on cotton paper. 6″ x 5.5″ (15.2cm x 14cm).

Unframed: $175.00

Many skilled, visual artists were showing with me. Please take moment to check out the work of Cherry Buttons, Mizz Mechanique, and Linda Guenste.

The main focus of the evening was fashion. The air was thick with beauty, music, sex, and clove cigarettes.

Not So Human Beings. Ink on paper. 6″ x 5.5″ (15.2cm x 14cm).

Steampunk Sketchy’s

It has been a while since I attended a Dr. Sketchy‘s Anti Art School in Philadelphia. And what an event it was today! The costumes were gorgeous at the steam punk themed Dr. Sketchy’s. Our lovely models were Lulu Lollipop and Ginger Leigh of the burlesque Peek-A-Boo Revue, with special guest posings by Count Scotchula.

First Person Shooter

The Etsy Gamers’ game of the month this May is Bioshock. They seem to be on a first person shooter kick, which is OK by me. The following ACEO is of a Little Sister and  Big Daddy. It is hard not to think of the under water city Rapture as a horrific steam punk version of Oz. I had fun playing with the art deco arches of the game.  This Big Daddy’s name is Toto.


Not in Kansas Anymore. Ink, watercolor, and paper. 2.5″x3.5″ (6.4cmx8.9cm).

Prints Available.

Business Time

The hardest part about being as artist is promotion. Creating art is easy. Getting people to look at it is another story. I finally got around to making business cards, which is something that should have happened a long time ago.

I’ve been leaving them everywhere and giving them to everyone. There’s no way of knowing if they’re succeeding. If you found this site due to business card, please leave a comment.

There are five hundred. I am hand drawing an individual piece of art on every one.

It is turning out to be quite the endeavor.

More and More

Two more ACEO’s. I’m on a bit of a kick.
